Claims $30,000 Winter Green Scratch-Off Prize
Michael Stevens has had a tough couple of years – disabled on the job, now unemployed, he’s going through things that would bring many of us down. Despite the setbacks, Michael is upbeat and optimistic – and this was before he won $30,000 playing the Maryland Lottery’s Winter Green scratch-off.
“I don’t get too down,” he told officials. “Even when the world’s crashing down around me. That’s giving up. I won’t do that.” With that positive outlook in play, Michael purchased his Winter Green scratch-off and experienced a welcome windfall.
“I scratched the ticket at home with my girlfriend. I wasn’t sure I was reading it correctly so I passed it to her to check.” That careful review produced the news he hoped to hear. “Thank goodness that wall was there to hold me up,” said Michael with a chuckle. Michael purchased his winning ticket at the Ritchie Highway Citgo, located at 7237 Ritchie Hwy. in Glen Burnie.
